Subject: Letters...We Wrote Letters...

Just think; they mailed those letters with a 3 cent stamp - 2 cents if it wasn't sealed (like ya did with Christmas cards).

Good movie for its day - makes some excellent points. Nice acting. The kids look truly related - their eyes are almost identical.

Cute and perhaps effective for its time, but letter writing is becoming obsolete in our modern world of instant communication.
